MacEachern examines the deep history of Boko Haram, a contemporary Islamist terrorist organisation, but one that is rooted in a long tradition of frontier violence, banditry, and smuggling in Central Africa. His 2018 book Searching for Boko Haram is grounded in 30 summers of archaeological fieldwork in Cameroon and Chad.
